What Does Back End Mean In Rap? (EXPLAINED)

“Back end” is a term widely used in music that connotes various meanings when used in a sentence or when pointing out something. 

This slang word can be used to describe the earnings a creator receives from his or her performance rights when a piece of his or her music is broadcast on radio, television, or other media. That’s why the same thing is called a “side hustle.” Rappers who are just starting out in their careers are involved in this kind of transaction.

The “back end” can also refer to the money earned from investment. Thus, this connotes a return on investment.

“That artist needs a backend to support himself”
“He already received his backend from his investment.”
